Angels

 

Someone did something special for me last Thursday. They took care of my dog when I couldn’t. They are “fostering” her so she could have a vet check-up and can get medication for her hip dysplasia. The shots I’m paying for because I’ll feel bad if I don’t cover something. I’m also not certain how much this vet visit cost. I used to have pet insurance for all of my animals, so I haven’t seen real prices in some time. Needless to say, I’m looking for more freelance work. But my Moon has an angel right now that I’m extremely thankful for, especially since she’s been very sick this week.

Moon is doing well. We have antibiotics for her and began the Meloxicam to treat her hip dysplasia. She also has a lump on her left underbelly near her ribs that’s about the size of a kumquat or cherry, but the vet said it’s probably just a fatty tumor and nothing to worry about right now. I just need to keep an eye on it. Other than all of that, she’s fine and even got a pedicure.

I’ve had many angels in my lifetime. Some have been family; others, friends. I don’t talk about it a lot because I don’t know what to say or how to express how deeply appreciative I am for what they’ve done for me. They’ve all helped me in so many different ways. So if you’re one of my angels, a thousand thank yous. When I can again, I’ll pay you back or pay it forward, whether or not we’re still speaking to one another.

I’ve been an angel too. I definitely don’t talk about that because I don’t think it’s appropriate, so unless you’re someone I’ve helped who knows this is true about me, you’ll never hear of it outside of this one statement. I usually do this kind of thing anonymously. My only regret right now is that I can’t help much these days, but I’m working toward getting to that place again soon.

So if you’ve been an angel to someone, thank you. And if you haven’t had the chance to be an angel yet, give it a try. You’d be surprised at how little it takes to make a big difference in someone’s life.

  1. We always knew you were an angel. You always have a sunny disposition, regardless of what life throws at you. Even when you think you’re being negative, the positivity inside you comes through. And that’s why we all love you.

  2. I never used to believe in angels, and I still don’t believe in winged humanoids. But when you grow up and realize that the old masters were using their art–painting–to try to depict something that was really not visible, but was rather an impulse to do the work of love, then angels make more sense. Love to meet them, and sometimes, get to be one.

    Glad Moon has a fostering home. It will make things easier for both of you for a while. Get a bit of rest from the stairs! :)TX

    • I like what you said about angels. Never thought about it like that, actually.

      Moon is still with me. A friend is just “fostering” her, or in other words, paying for whatever she needs. And she’s getting used to the stairs. 🙂

  3. My horns are showing moreso than my wings or halo over the years, but I hope we’ve been there for you over time. You’re the last connection to my brother that I care to keep for the most part kiddo.

    • Believe me, Unca T, my horns come out when needed. And yes, you’ve been there for me. When I talk about family, you’re always included in that. Love you! ❤

  4. oooh ooooh OOOOH. Like a bad penny…or a recurrent sinus infection. The Tamster has found you.
    Well, ok. Its more like I’ve gotten off my lazy hindparts and figured out how to ‘Subscribe’ to you here….since I’ve sorta had a blog “here” since last summer I think? Sigh…mebbe 2009…
    I’m such a dork.
    BUT – I will be blogging here…weekly.

Have something to say? Jot it down. I dare you. ;)
